Two postdoctoral positions are immediately available to study mammalian cardiovascular development and regenerative biology. We use mouse as the model system and are particularly interested in how transcription factors regulate early heart formation, their roles in human congenital heart diseases and in differentiation of cardiac progenitor cells. The positions offer a unique opportunity for talented scientists to work in a dynamic and innovative environment. For research background, please see our recent publications in Circulation (PMID: 30566018) and Nature Communications (PMID: 26515110).
